4WD and AWD Aren't the Same Thing

Are 4-Wheel Drive and All-Wheel the same thing? No, they are not the same thing and the option that's best for you might vary depending on what you need.

Why Get a Vehicle with 4-Wheel Drive?

If you stay in a snowy area or a climate that regularly snows, a vehicle with 4WD sounds about right for you. Bear in mind that 4WD is for off-road terrain. If you like driving off-road frequently, then, 4WD would be perfect for you. Just be careful when you use it. It can be hard on your engine.

Why Get a Vehicle with an All-Wheel Drive?

One advantage of AWD is that you don’t have to think about it. 4WD works using computers that monitor the road. When they detect difficulty, they give extra power to the tires that need extra power. It happens automatically.
